Royal Jay has put out this infographic (see below) which summarizes the impact of many of the health care data breaches we’ve seen hitting the news over the past few years. One problem with these infographics is that the numbers are so huge, I think many organizations have grown numb to breaches. I imagine many organizations kind of throw their hands up in the air and say that a breach is inevitable. That’s a scary position to take. Certainly you can’t be 100% secure, but you can make it hard enough that a breach is less likely.

The people at DataMotion, cloud based HISP providers, sent me the following infographic covering the HIPAA data breaches. It’s a good reminder of the potential for data breaches in healthcare. As Marc Probst recently suggested, we should be focusing as much attention on things like security as we are on meaningful use since the penalties for a HIPAA violation are more than the meaningful use penalties.

Caradigm, a population health company, recently sent me this HIPAA Privacy infographic. As a sucker for infographics, I had to share. While related to HIPAA, the BYOD data at the top of the infographic certainly paints an important picture for healthcare IT administrators. What data stands out to you?

Who doesn’t like a good infographic? My favorite part of this HIPAA infographic is the last section where it breaks out the number of healthcare organizations that are being investigated for HIPAA violations and the results of those investigations.
